The hand blender will fit perfectly in your hand and is quite light to use.
The motor is German-engineered and offers you the PowerBell system which blends rapidly and finely. This technology is exclusive to Braun.
Two attachment comes with this device: the beaker and the whisk. I have used the whisk while make brown sauce to accompany our supper one night. I decided to whisk the powder in the water before cooking it over the stove in order to thicken it. This allowed me to avoid have chunks of powder stuck together. The sauce was beautifully mixed when I was ready to thicken it. We also used the MQ505 hand blender to mix our greens in water at supper time. It did a marvelous job at mixing them without the noise of the regular blender we normally use.
The attachments are easy to remove for cleaning by simply clicking on the sides of the device. You will also see that there are two levels of power which will allow you to had some boost while mixing a sauce or making guacamole. Be aware that the whisk itself needs to be remove from the plastic attachment in order to be cleaned. The second attachment with the beaker and the whish only can be put in the dishwasher.
Also included in the box you will obtain a 600ml plastic beaker which is great to mix your ingredients without being splashed in the process. This container is also dishwasher safe.

This hand blender is perfect for the kitchen at home or at the RV. We are considering bringing it to our RV in order to be able to mix dips that we eat sometimes like guacamole for example. This is a great tool that I think should be own by any family.
One thing I would like to see in the future would be to have a rechargeable version of the hand blender which will remove the awkward cord out of the way when you use it.
The Braun MQ 505 Hand Blender is available at your favorite store, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
